I purchased this German Pantry for $200 in Las Vegas.  The owners bought it when he was stationed in Germany in 1970.  It was used.   I have all the measuring cups and it is in near perfect condition.  One of the back legs is broken but I have the original piece.  Also at some point someone replaced the counter area.  I would like to return it to it original state but I don't know what that is or if it is worth it.  I have searched endlessly for information about this with zero luck.  I am looking for history.  They listed it as Art Deco German Pantry.  I cannot find any info on google or anywhere on the internet.  Is it that rare.  Please help me.

This is not really rare or valuable, it is a mass produced cabinet in the art deco style, it looks like this was made between 1950 and 1970, but if you send me 2 photos of the back of the cabinet (top and bottom) I may be able to give you a more exact date of manufacture.
